A Chorus Within Her
Oct. 30 - Nov. 14, 2021
A Devised Work by Gabrielle Brant Freeman, Glenis Redmond, Christine Sloan Stoddard, Carmin Wong, and the Ensemble
Directed by Alina Collins Maldonado
Choreographed by Tiffany Quinn
The first live production of Theater Alliance’s 2021-2022 season, A Chorus Within Her uses the lens of women’s experience to interrogate and explore the experiences of the pandemic year. Poets, choreographers, and actors have spent months conducting Zoom interviews, issuing social media surveys, mining their own identities and experiences to create one unified, experiential evening of theater.
Part ritual, part airing of difficult truths, and completely centered in authentic voices of women, A Chorus Within Her is a choreopoem that examines who we were before the pandemic . . . who we were as we survived the past year . . . and how we collectively move forward from here.
